A ten fold glory that the prize
With out it your undone
And <​But​> with it you will shine as bright
As the bright shining sun
there you may reign like mighty gods
Creating worlds so fair
A[t] least a world for every wife
That you take with you there
 
The man thats <​has​> got ten fair wives
Ten worlds he may create
And he that has got less than this
Will find a bitter fate
The one or two that he may have
He’ll be deprived of these
and they’ll be given as talents were
To him that <​who​> has got ten
 
And ’tis so here in this sad life
Such ills you must endure
Some priest or king may claim your wife
Because that your are poor
A revelation he may get
refuse it if you deare
And you’ll be damned perpetually
By our good Lord the mayor
 
But if that you yield willing[ly?]
Your Daughters and you<​r​> wives
In spiritual marriage to our Pope
He[’]ll bless you all your lives
He[’]ll seal you up be damned you Can’t
No matter what you do
If that you only stick to him
He’ll swears he ll take you through [p. [2]]
